How do you create effective, interesting, impactful and, above all, useful data-visualisations, charts and infographics?

What principles and practices give the best results?

Data Is Beautiful: Learn to create powerful infographics & data-visuals image


The concept-driven approach inverts the common practice of starting with data. Instead it focuses on developing a distinct, useful, smart question or concept to frame and ask of the data. This way of working yields different results, helps the critiquing and ‘debugging’ of charts, and is tool-agnostic, useable for many outputs: presentations, interactives, data-stories, apps, marketing materials etc.


These introductory level seminars are a mix of lecture & hands-on exercises with plenty of discussion.

David will present live, screen-sharing high quality visuals (naturally!) to explain techniques and creative processes which lead ‘beyond the bar chart’

Attendees will break into virtual breakout rooms to do creative exercises, and also do solo work.


In these fun intensives, attendees will directly learn:

» concepting & generation of solid, interesting ideas ripe for visualization

» creation, selection & execution of appropriate & effective charts

» designing and beautifying graphs & diagrams

and be broadly introduced to:

» how to use visualisation as a lens for communicating of ideas & stories

» the many new methods and approaches for visualising data

» the best current tools alongside optimal choices & practices

Useful for

» Translating written reports, research & messaging into visual graphics

» Understanding data journalism and story-telling with data

» Words and ideas people looking to translate concepts into design language

» Visual / design thinkers wanting to expand approaches to include data

» Data / code practitioners looking to improve aesthetics & conceptual prowess

What will I come away with?

Everyone leaves with their own datavizzes created on the day, a copy of the slide deck presented other resources shared during the day plus a streamable video created from our seminars to enable you to re-cap the tutorials and exercises from the day for 14 days after the event.

NB The video re-play included in your post event pack was recorded and edited from previous sessions, to retain all tuition and creative exercises. For personal privacy we have removed any sections where audience participation may have occurred.

About the workshop

Workshops are hosted in an online virtual meeting space with a capacity of 100 guests. There will be many opportunities to ask questions via the meeting space platform.


The workshop is given in a presentation-style format with plenty of interaction, questions and breakout exercises.


You will need access to a laptop or computer with internet connectivity. Camera / video is optional.

Please do bring paper / pens and expect some fun collaboration in virtual breakout spaces. You may also want to bring data or problems you are currently working with, so you can see if applying the Information Is Beautiful lens can help you find a solution or expression of your data.
